But why is a picture of their father in a Toad's house? Also, what are those stripes covering...?

Well, this was made in The Eighties. Keep in mind what a crazy awesome time period that was.

Bowser was meant as an allegory for G.R.I.D.S. as it was known at the time.

Also the Goomba peering over the window sill has hands.
